This is a tool I use with parents to show them the different ways their children reason with and solve addition problems. It has been a very powerful tool for me. Parents are often unsure of "new math" methods that veer away from rote memorization. This tool allows me to demonstrate to parents how their children are developing a true deep understanding of number and reasonable strategies to manipulate and make sense of numbers.
I also use this as a tool during conferences to show parents what strategies their child is using and what we would like them to see. For example, a child who is 'counting all' will naturally progress to the counting on strategy and then to some of the others. By no means are children expected to use all strategies, only what makes sense to them. There is a checklist at the end, but it is not a checklist each child should complete. It is just to help you see that each child is using a variety of strategies and moving on from the simpler one like counting all and counting on. It's simply a way to show the variety of reasonable problem solving strategies children use. There are 11 strategies on the checklist.
This could also be edited and used in kindergarten or second grade.
